70s and 80s

I have vain hopes of talking about the 70's and 80's in the near future. I grew up in that time, yet I don't feel that I was totally part of that time. Much of it  has gone under the bridge, and it's going to take some work to dig it out. I also grew up with parents who weren't too into modern culture, and culture goes, and I myself was very antisocial and missed so much of the culture of my peers. Yet, I do endeavor to pull some of this out of my head and put it down.

In the end, I hope this exercise helps me in writing some period pieces. I'm sure that there's some good stuff there if I can only get to it.

I was listening to 70's on 7 on Sirius radio yesterday, reliving my early teens and considering a story set in that time, and then I realized the research I'd have to do even though I lived through that decade and changed my mind.
